Diehl Funeral Home spokesman Michael Gladfelter says a casket containing 78-year-old Mount Wolf resident Ronald Bloss Sr. was loaded onto a small boat and trailer on Wednesday and was pulled to a cemetery by a pickup truck driven by one of his five sons. Mount Wolf is about 30 miles south of Harrisburg, the state capital.

The York Daily Record ( reports Bloss loved hunting, fishing and spending time on rivers.
